I can't wait for next weekend's (Sept 30 - Oct 2) Go Play NW online #ttrpg event! Who else will be there?
@PaulCzege Not a solution for every game or relationship, but I like the novelty of the Ship Tease mechanic Christie created for her Valentines-themedThirsty Sword Lesbians setting Isle Always Be Falling in Love. I especially like how it lets the players agree on what general pace/trope they want the relationship to have without predetermining every emotional beat
"How to use these tables" text shamelessly stolen from Thirsty Sword Lesbians: Advanced Lovers and Lesbians, btw!
Character study via hands of one of the characters in my Traverser game
Art was the perfect combat soldier, and made use of her quantum powers to achieve optimal results at any price -- including her hands.
In the Since, Art has struggled to leave her threat-seeking instincts behind. She is learning to see the wonder in the world -- such as the Best Cup of Coffee imagineable --, express herself, be vulnerable, and see the possibility for growth in others.
making good choices about playing spooky games before bed
seriously though Dark Dome's escape room/adventure puzzle games on android are great. I love the aesthetic and the creativity of the puzzles without being too complicated or frustrating. the stories are interrelated but each 1-2 hour game stands alone, like a bunch of short stories set in the same spooky town.
they're free, and well worth a 99c upgrade for adless hints and a bonus scene, imo
Octopus as a Subject is a multitasker, wit, camouflage, surprise
These are all themes I like a lot and identify with, so it's an exciting and personal Subject for me. It makes me think of the "mastermind," the "spider," orchestrating a heist
Modifier Goat is chaotic, mischievous, excitable, inexplicable, rebellious, sustaining, determined, difficult, useful
Modifier Fungi is collaborative, multiplying, resilient, quirky
To start the visual energy of this spread is so good. Octopus brings a lot of dynamism, while goat and fungi visually stabilize it.
Also interesting that *all* of these cards are extensions from the original set, specific to the Red Hand Lenormand -- no reference books here!
anyway, more people should run Royal Blood for me
The second Modifier, Cross, is associated with religion, duty, selflessness, burden, and suffering.
Ring+Cross could be an unhappy marriage, but it could also be talking about the duties and work to keep a relationship stable.
So altogether, I read this as a reminder that a happy partnership still requires work to maintain; responsibility for that work is shared between partners, but do not be afraid to act selflessly.
